If thereís a handrail in your eye line when you sit down itís deemed as restricted.  I wonder if the away following get restricted view tickets? Iíd imagine the top corner and areas of the lower section of the Doug Ellis would find it difficult seeing a corner at the Holte End being taken.

From a quick look at the source code, if you want to see what's available for Bournemouth but aren't yet eligible, and are getting the greyed out Coming Soon button, you can go to this url and access it.

https://tickets.avfc.co.uk/en-GB/events/aston%20villa%20v%20bournemouth/2019-8-17_15.00/villa%20park?hallmap

I would assume there will be checks on the server side to stop you buying if you're not eligible yet, but TBH I wouldn't bank on it.

I'm surprised at the number of seats marked as 'restricted view'. Why was the stand built with such seats. However, the seats are only discounted by a quid, so I suspect the view isn't that restricted

Itís generally a rail either at the front or at the gangway that forces you to adjust position if the ball is played in front of the handrails.  Itís not the worst and the minimal reduction reflects this.

Yep, I sat in one of those seats once a few years back and it was as you've described.

the rail didn't really restrict the view much at all.

Although it was against Man United, so it would have been better if it had obstructed the view entirely.

Just over 3,000 seats available for Bournemouth, but not on general sale for another week.  Will be interesting to see how demand holds up as the season progresses.

Are you remembering to not count the away end tickets which, for some reason, show up there?

I just did a quick tally and got just over 2k left.

Maybe Bournemouth will only take one tier so that would be an extra lot of tickets available for Villa fans?

Yes, you're right.  Even better, except for people hoping for general sale of course.

It would be nice if the club pulled it's collective finger out of its arse and sorted out the ticket resale process.  I'm on holiday for the Bournemouth game and would quite like to flog my season ticket on but months after being told an announcement was imminent there's still no way of selling my ticket to someone else.

Bournemouth allocated 2017 tickets, but 3000 available in total if needed. Theyíve not sold initial allocation yet though and are currently on sale to 9 away games last year

Well there kind of is.

You can ask the club to download them to a paper ticket saying that you want to Ďpass them oní to a friend or family member as you canít go.

Then someone on here will probably pay you for them as even if they can get a ticket from the club it wonít be as good as yours!

With this in mind, it would be nice if we could make the away section more flexible, ie allowing the upper segregation line to be moveable.  Iím guessing that they allocate downstairs first which would probably be the 2017 figure.  If after that, a club sell another 500, it would leave 500 available which in the past have just remained empty, regardless of demand.

I appreciate we wonít get too many teams not taking up their full allocation but if the chance arises,Iíd like to see us ensure fans have the opportunity to sit in seats that would otherwise remain empty.

I read at the time it was announced that it was via the pride rewards scheme.  Ie, you submit points in order to enter the draw.

Phone the ticket office, that's what I've always done, only option.

To be fair, it's really, really straightforward and takes about 30 seconds. They just deactivate your card and email you a PDF print-at-home ticket. I'd suggest not mentioning selling it, though.

I did it a few times last season as I was unable to make a few games and generally gave them to one of the Villa fans in the office.
